1. Mi Ni?a Bonita by Vicente Fernandez

Let’s start off with a classic that’s almost guaranteed to make your dad cry about how you’re a woman now. This song is perfect for the classic dad and daughter dance that’s a tradition at quinceaneras.

Of all the quinceanera dances, the father-daughter dance is one of the most meaningful and memorable. A sweet song like Mi Nina Bonita is perfect for this touching moment.

2. Gasolina by Daddy Yankee

A complete 180 from the last song suggestion brings us to Gasolina by Daddy Yankee. This is a modern quinceanera after all; you need some modern bops to get people grooving on the dance floor.

Gasolina is a great song to dance to that all your younger guests will love. It’s high energy, has a great beat, and will be sure to get everyone excited and jumping on the dance floor.

3. El Querreque

What quinceanera is complete without a huapango? This is definitely a must-have or there will be an uproar.

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to dance in a line and burn what feels like thousands of calories with your entire family, friends, and friends of friends. Ah, traditions.

4. Havana by Camila Cabello

Let’s now move away from the traditions and back to some modern bops. While Gasolina is more of an upbeat bop, Havana by Camila Cabello is a bit slower, but it will still get people hyped, dancing, and moving their hips.

One of the most popular songs in recent years, it is a must have for a 2018 quinceanera.

5. La Vaca by Mala Fe

La Vaca is found on almost all quinceanera playlists, even if it is somewhat strange and perhaps not everyone’s favorite. It’s a staple for almost all family gatherings from quinceaneras to weddings.

This would definitely be a crowd favorite at your quinceanera. You want to be sure to balance modern favorites with classics to please all of your guests, and it wouldn’t really be a quinceanera without La Vaca.
